    After searching all the usual hot spots and respect forums and coming up empty, I decided to hit the store today with a decent list of Gamora appearances in hand. Determined to find out whether or not the title, " The Most Dangerous Woman in the Universe" is just that, a title, or does this daughter of The Mad Titan have the on panel feats to back it up. Bare with me as this is just the initial stages. I'll add more scans and feats as I continue to comb through the issues, but I wanted to get this started while I had time. Please, feel free to add comments, issue numbers, and/or scans yourself. Time to give Gamora some shine ;)

    Trained by Thanos:

    Gamora learns a harsh lesson during her first defeat. Ordered to stay with the ship, she disobeys Thanos and explores a dangerous space port on her own.

    Holds her own

    Augmentation :

    But is eventual overrun

    and her body is all but destroyed

    Thanos was forced to replace much of Gamora's original body as a teenager. Some mechanical, others dark science.

    Strikes/Nerve Strikes:

    From what I've seen Gamora is a highly accurate striker. The captions may not always indulge the reader with obvious references, but the locations of alot of her strikes can not be ignored.

    Nerve strike to Thanos (but he's faking)

    Nerve strike(s): Thing

    Reflexes/Dodging:

    Admittedly there isnt much here but hopefully I come across some decent feats.

    Great thread Gambler, a good scan to find if you can is how she is pretty much burned to a crisp during Annihilation Conquest by the Church of Universal Truth and she healed. She is definitely one of my favorite cosmic characters right behind Nova, Starlord, and Rocket. When they paired her with Nova during Annihilation I was like best pairing in comics in awhile.

    Love Gamora and really miss DnA's Guardians. What a waste cancelling it and Nova.
